The global sodium nitrate market was valued at $80.6 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $125.1 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2021 to 2030. Sodium nitrate is a chemical compound that is used in applications such as fertilizers and explosives. It is a type of alkali metal nitrate used as preservative in cured meat products.          

Black powder is used in pyrotechnics and smoke bombs. This powder requires additional additives that help to slow down the burning rate. Sodium nitrate is widely used as active additive in black powder owing to its cost effectiveness and stability. In addition, it is capable of accelerating the burning capability of combustible materials. Thus, making it ideal to be used as a solid rocket propellant and other explosives. In addition, rise in demand of industrial grade sodium nitrate and glass production. Sodium nitrate is used in two-stage production of chemical stable and high strength glasses. In order to increase the strength of finished glass, it can be immersed in sodium nitrate bath. All these factors collectively surge demand for sodium nitrate, thereby augmenting the global market growth.

However, prolonged used of processed meat containing sodium nitrate preservative may increase the risk of heart diseases. In addition, it leads to blood vessel damage which in turn narrows arteries leading to risk of cardiac arrest is anticipated to hamper the market growth. 

On the contrary, food grade sodium nitrate is used during curing process of packaged food and to avoid botulism exterminating for long aged meats. However, commercial use of food grade sodium nitrate is prohibited by FDA in food products such as smoked meat, cooked meat, sausages, and bacon. Industrial grade sodium nitrate is used in applications such as production of fertilizers, heat transfer component, and as an intermediate chemical compound. In addition, it can also be used for production of explosives, construction chemicals, degreasing products, and adhesives. Use of food grade sodium nitrate as a color fixative in cured meats and poultry meat products is key market trend. Growing legislator food regulations to ensure food safety has augmented the demand for food additives and preservatives. This factor is anticipated to offer new opportunities in the global market. 

The sodium nitrate market analysis is done on the basis of grade, end use, and region. Depending on grade, the market is divided into food and industrial. On the basis of end use, it is fragmented into food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals & agrochemicals, explosives, and others. Region-wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. 

Sodium Nitrate Market, By Region

The Asia-Pacific sodium nitrate market accounted for 37.3% of the market share in 2020, and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. Sodium nitrate creates distinct flavor, enables to control oxidation process, and imparts antimicrobial property in food products is the key market trend. Addition of sodium nitrate in processed meat such as ham and salami impart pink color to the meat. In addition, processed meat containing red hue requires preservative in order to extend the shelf life. These factors are driving the adoption of sodium nitrate in food industry and thereby augmenting the demand of the global market in Asia-Pacific.

Sodium Nitrate Market, By Grade

In 2020, the industrial grade was the largest revenue generator, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period. Use of food grade sodium nitrate as a color fixative in cured meats and poultry meat products is a key market trend. Sodium nitrate is the most commonly used food preservative in processed meat products. It is used and added during curing process in order to inhibit the growth of bacteria. Moreover, sodium nitrate is capable of removing bacteria that grow in presence of moisture and inhibits the bacterial growth through dehydration.

Sodium Nitrate Market, By End Use

By end use, the chemicals and agrochemicals segment dominated the global market in 2020, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% during forecast period. Sodium nitrate is used in production of fertilizers as it acts as storage vessel for nitrogen. Nitrogen is important as it helps to stimulate plant growth, stems, and leaves. Moreover, lack of nitrogen reduces plant growth while on the other hand excess nitrogen content can deter flower and fruit growth. Use of sodium nitrate as a fertilizer helps to supply proper amount of nitrogen to plant roots and other vascular system.

Impact Of Covid-19 On The Global Sodium Nitrate Market

  • The novel coronavirus is an incomparable global pandemic that has spread to over 180 countries and caused huge losses of lives and the economy around the globe. The sodium nitrate market has been moderately impacted due to the wake of COVID-19 pandemic owing to its dependence on food, explosive, and glass end-use industries. 
  • Sodium nitrate is used in two-stage production of chemical stable and high strength glasses. In order to increase the strength of finished glass it can be immersed in sodium nitrate bath. In addition, it also improves surface characteristics of glass and chemical stability. Chemically strengthened glass product offers resistance toward scratches, improved bending strength, and temperature stability. Glass manufacturing sector has been hit due to COVID-19 pandemic, owing to temporary halt of production plants in order to conform to government instructed lockdown measures. However, ease of lockdown measures across the globe has helped to regain the growth of glass industry in 2021 .
  • Moreover, explosives are key input for mining and infrastructure sectors. There is growing shortfall of explosives across the globe owing to supply demand gap. In addition, short fall of black powder additives that are utmost important in production of explosives such as sodium nitrate and ammonium nitrate, has impacted negatively on the growth of global sodium nitrate market in the pandemic situation. 
  • On the contrary, sodium nitrate suppliers have increased the price by 20% owing to increase in the cost of explosives that are used in mining sector. This factor is anticipated to fuel the growth of the global market despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
